COUNCIL DECISION (CFSP) 2018/1791 of 19 November 2018 amending and updating Decision (CFSP) 2018/340 of 6 March 2018 establishing the list of projects to be developed under PESCO to include the next set of PESCO projects, and calls for the swift implementation of all projects

1. Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO) is a political framework, based on a set of commitments intended to improve the respective military assets and defence capabilities of participating Member States. PESCO allows groups of participating Member States to work together to propose and pursue specific capability initiatives and projects.

2. On 19 December 2018 at the Foreign Affairs Council, EU Member States participating in PESCO adopted a decision that identified 17 projects to be added to the current list of projects to be developed under PESCO.

3. The 17 projects are a mix of capability development, training, and enabling initiatives that span different operating environments. Each project includes a list of the PESCO participating Member States that have agreed to join that specific initiative.
